This was my primary amp from August 2009 until late last year when I when I bought the VAC 40 series 2. When I discovered this amp, I had been looking for a low power Fender-style amp with a 15 inch speaker. The VAC circuit inside Samamp amps is an amazing way to allow an amp to operate at different power levels. It is almost impossible to make this amp sound bad. The only downside is that it’s very simple and only really does a few things very well but it sounds amazing while doing them.
